Health Benefits of Beans

Beans, lentils, and other legumes are some of the best sources of lean, clean protein. They are made up of high-quality carbohydrates that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Beans pack a healthy punch:

  • They are high in iron, folate, magnesium, potassium, and soluble fiber. These heart-healthy nutrients help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease.
  • Studies have found that folate can improve mood and memory.
  • Magnesium prevents migraine headaches and works with potassium to help lower high blood pressure.
  • White beans (from this week's recipe) are a good dairy-free source of calcium which can help maintain strong bones and fight PMS symptoms. They’re also rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants that help prevent and manage arthritis and guard against memory loss.

Versatile and delicious, beans are a superfood worth exploring.

4-Year-Old Vegan Baking Star

When Petey Rojas' mom, Inhabitat.com’s founder Jill Fehrenbacher, noticed that there weren’t many how-to cooking videos with small children, she decided to make a video of Petey making vegan cupcakes. Petey had so much fun that they decided to make more videos –- the results are adorable and inspiring and have become an internet sensation.

Petey told TODAY.com his favorite recipe is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes, but he also wants “to try making noodles someday... and toast with vegan butter." He added, "My favorite part of baking is pouring stuff."

Jill encourages more parents to try baking with their kids: "[Baking] may not be the first thing to come to people’s minds, but they [toddlers] love to get involved and if the recipes are simple, you supervise them, and keep them away from the oven, it’s a great learning project for young kids." Good habits start young.

Watch as Petey shows us how to make
Red Velvet Cupcakes or Snail-Shaped Bread :)
